How the Improving Economy is Making Hiring Harder


For workers, a growing economy means better jobs and the ability to choose between quality jobs to find that next career move. For companies, a growing economy means more revenue and more opportunities to grow. But a growing economy also means that there are less qualified workers looking for jobs, and the lack of quality employees due to the constantly improving economy is proving to be a huge challenge for companies around the country.

Many Companies Are Feeling The Recruiting Crunch

Yahoo! Finance published the findings of a report done in October 2015 that indicated that 48 percent of companies in the United States are finding it extremely difficult to fill positions with quality employees. That number is up from 45 percent in September 2015, and it is a number that continues to rise. The simple truth is that, as the economy continues to improve, recruiting is becoming more and more of a problem for American companies.
